571.85 LIEN OF GARNISHEE.

If it appears that the garnishee has a security interest or lien on the indebtedness or property, the creditor, on motion, may be permitted to pay the amount of the lien or security interest, and the amount that is paid shall be repaid to the creditor, with interest, out of the proceeds from the sale of the indebtedness or property. The garnishee may sell the property to satisfy the lien, if a sale is authorized by the contract between the debtor and garnishee, at any time before the payment or tender.
